The Bronx Horns have established themselves as one of the best Latin Jazz and Salsa bands on the scene today. With the capability to perform Latin Jazz, all forms of Salsa (Mambo, Cha Cha, Megengue, Boogaloo, Bolero etc.) or a combination of the two styles, they serve up a dynamic performance every time they walk on stage. Comprised of former members of the Tito Puente Orchestra, their experience and talent is rivaled by few musicians on the scene today.
The band is made up of Latin Jazz veterans such as group leader Mitch Frohman on sax and flute, who spent 25 years with the Tito Puente Orchestra, Trumpeter Pete Nater, the legendary Bobby Porcelli on alto sax, the great sonero Frankie Vazquez and an all-star rhythm section rounding out the band.
The Bronx Horns inspire and create new groundbreaking concepts in the Latin music field by bringing listeners to their feet and delivering their music with a fashionable poise that can only be achieved by artists of their stature.
The Bronx Horns have earned mass critical acclaim and along with a devoted following by delivering breathtaking performances at the San Jose Jazz Festival, Marciac Jazz Fest, J.V.C. Festival, the Lincoln Center ‘Out of Doors’ Festival and top tier clubs such as Birdland and The Blue Note. The Bronx Horns continue the legacy established by their mentors Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria into 2014.
